Catechists in Action – Len Astrowski Shares His Planning Techniques

In this segment of Catechists in Action, 7th grade catechist Len Astrowski shares some details about how he prepares for his lessons. Watch for the following:

  • Len explains that he has all of his lessons on computer and makes adjustments each year as needed
  • Len shows the outline that he develops for class each week and emphasizes that it is not “cast in stone.”
  • Len shows how he follows the 4 steps of the catechetical process (engage, explore, reflect, respond) as outlined in the Finding God program that is used at the parish
  • Len shows how he arranged his catechist manual into separate units for greater ease and organization.


Thanks, Len, for sharing with us and for allowing us to be guests in your classroom! Keep up the great work!
